Thai National Parks

1-day wildlife tour in Khao Yai (Group tour)

(We currently don't offer this package until further notice)

This 1-day group tour is both wildlife and scenic oriented. You will join other tourists to visit some of popular destinations of Khao Yai National Park.

Minimum 4 people will be required to start a tour. Unlike the other tour operators in the area offering much larger groups, our groups are limited in size, not exceeding 6 people. We believe that a smaller group size is more optimal for wildlife watching.

What?

A 1-day group tour in Khao Yai includes hiking, safari drives and a visit to a waterfall. A mix of wildlife watching and enjoying scenery.

Itinerary

Following itinerary is an example of a typical day. The guide might occasionally take the freedom to decide for small changes based on better chances for wildlife watching or depending on (in)accessibility of certain attractions.

Typically, the daytrip starts with a drive looking for wildlife like gibbons, hornbills, macaques and other animals along the road. Afterwards we head to a trail to set out on a jungle hike to learn more about the forest inhabitants and the plantlife. After the included lunch break, we will head to one of Khao Yai's beautiful waterfalls.

Afterwards, we will continue by safari driving to check the various saltlicks and foraging areas where potentially elephants or other animals may show up.

Where & When?

This trip departs from Pak Chong and can be booked all year-round. Pak Chong can be reached by public transport from Bangkok, but due to the fixed starting time, one is required to stay overnight in the area prior the tour. But returning by public transport right after the trip is possible. Our guide will drop you at the bus stop in that case.

We will inform you about possible pick up locations (not all hotels are within pick-up range).

Suggestion: Hello Hostel is a new budget hostel within walking distance from both the railway station and the bus/ minivan stops. We offer free pick up service from this location. Click here to book Hello Hostel.

If you are interested in a private transfer by taxi or minivan from e.g. Bangkok, just let us know!

How much?

You'll be accompanied by a guide and join in with other tourists. A minimum number of 4 participants is required before the tour can take off. In case the minimum is not reached we keep the right to cancel the tour. In such an unfortunate case, of course you will get the option to either get the deposit refunded, or we can decide on a bit higher rate based on the group size that allows continuation of the tour.

Unlike most other group tours on offer in the area, we have decided on a maximum group size of 6 people to keep the groups small enough to avoid spoiling the jungle adventure feeling.

Important note

Please confirm with us before booking a hotel in Khao Yai area as we don't offer pickup if your hotel is too far away. Or because some hotel owners don't like their guests to be picked up by tour operators.

Hello,

We had a wonderful time in the Khao Yai National Park, due to our friendly guide and the driver. We saw a lot of wild animals in the jungle. We are very happy to have asked for a private one-day tour. Our guide knew so much about the animals, photographing and all aspects of the parc a visitor would like to know.

Our thanks to "Beer" and "Nat" for this life experience!

We wish the team all the best for the future. We also thank for protecting and taking care of the animals in the parc.

Thank you!

Greetings,

Christophe and Isabelle

I loved my time in Khao Yai from the time my guide Jun picked me up until they (Jun and my driver) walked me back to the lobby. It is a beautiful park and a true natural treasure. I do hope to return someday. My guide and driver were both wonderful, friendly and caring. Since I can not climb stairs much less down to waterfalls, I was grateful they went out of their way to find things for me to see and do. It was definately a day I won't forget and for which I thank them.

We had a wonderful day in Khao Yai! Our guide and our driver were really professional, passionate about their work and really friendly. They did the best to show us as much as possible about animals and nature in the park. We saw monkeys, gibbons, an elephant, a water dragon, snakes and lizards and during the night safari porcupines, flying squirrels and deers. I highly recommend this trip!

Many thanks to Jum and Gaeo for the wonderful trip. We book an one-day safari with night tour. This was the first time we were in the jungle and it was thrilling. Jum has a lot of knowledge which was very interesting to us. We saw animals we usually would have overlooked. We had nice foods, snack and plenty of water because Jum and Gaeo took care of us. They brought a telescope and binoculars which were essential for seeing the wildlife. We wish Jum and Gaeo all the best and fully recommended joining their tour.

I recently traveling to Thailand for about a week and had the opportunity to spend one of the days during out trip exploring Khao Yai National Park with Ton as our tour guide. I can honestly say that our day to the park was the highlight of my trip!

Ton was extremely knowledgable about the park and its wildlife, while also being a kind and fun tour guide throughout the day. Ton helped us see a wide variety of birds, a number of snakes and lizards, as well as quite a view mammals throughout the day as we drove around in a safari vehicle and did some hiking. I had also recently purchased a new camera that I am still learning how to use, and Ton was extremely kind and went about and beyond in helping me to use my camera to get some great photos of the animals that we were seeing!

I would highly recommend a visit to Khao Yai and a tour with Ton to anyone going to Thailand who enjoys wildlife and the outdoors.
